Zucchini and squash are versatile fruits (treated as vegetables) for cooking as a main dish, making into soups, breads, cakes and desserts. Any of these recipes fit well into a brunch menu or main meal. The recipes in this cookbook offer a nice variety of easy to make delicious recipes that lend some creativity to cooking with vegetables.
Since they do so well in most gardens, these fruits have become the end of many jokes about having way more than knowing what to do with. I have heard jokes about leaving a sack of zucchini on a neighbors doorstep, ringing the bell and running away.
So, if you have planted these fruits in your garden you might also be wondering how to use them up since you more than likely have many more than you can use. This cookbook can help find some new creative ideas to incorporate these fruits and whittle down extras from the garden.
Many of these zucchini recipes have their origins based on the Civil War era, pioneer, or Indian recipes, but have been adapted for modern cooking techniques. Also included is a short history of zucchini and its’ origins plus descriptions of several varieties of summer and winter squash.
